I have a 1994 Pontiac Firebird with the 10 speaker option (GM RPO Code UW2), and when I had a local stereo installer work on it,.. he ruined one of the (2) door speaker crossovers (also known as "filter"), and it (1) was thrown away. I still have one of the crossovers. So,... I was just going to make one from electronic components, but the crossovers each have two small coils that I can't identify because they are just marked "01" and "02", and are not identified as to their values on the GM RPO Code UW2 system schematic/chart.

So I'm either trying to find somebody who has one of those door speaker crossovers and is willing to sell it to me.
OR
Someone who just has those two coils from one of these crossovers to sell.
OR
Someone who knows the values of the coils I have, which I think are measured in "Henrys".
OR
Someone who can identify, and/or knows, the value of these coils, and can sell me coils of the same value (or tell me where to find them) so I can go ahead and build my own replacement crossover.
OR
If anybody knows where there's a 1993, 1994, or 1995 Firebird, Trans AM, or Firebird Formula that's being parted out, and that may have these audio system components in the doors for me to buy.
OR
If anybody knows where I can buy a new crossover that is identical in function to the bandpass crossover I'm trying to replace. (all this crossover is, is two coils and a capacitor on a small board. The signal goes through one coil,... then through the other coil and capacitor in series)

I should say that I've already tried all of the obvious fixes, like checking eBay and Firebird enthusiast websites for these parts. There's nothing out there for sale, nor the information I'm looking for.
Please don't try to sell me a aftermarket stereo or speaker/speaker system, as I'm obviously trying to get back to my stock speaker system.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this unique problem.
CHEERS,

3rd party option:  Buy a cheap set of old component speakers from Craigslist  and use the crossovers that come with those.

I know this was last year, but I just wanted to thank Blackbird-TA and Zump-1A for responding and trying to help with my audio system predicament.

 

This problem was finally resolved by recovering and repairing my original crossover, then reattaching it to my drivers side speaker/crossover bracket. My Premium Factory power amp/10-Speaker Sound System is restored to it's original glory.

 

Thanks guys,

CHEERS

firebird bob do you happen to know size location and specs on all 10 speakers. I am starting to restore my 2000 Firebird interior and audio system. Want to stay stock original as much as I can. Any help would be greatly  appreciated.
